Free AmiKit 10.2 update + Linux version
« on: August 11, 2017, 10:32:49 PM »

Hope you're having a great summer!
(or winter in Australia & New Zealand ;)) To make it even better for you, we've released a free update for all AmiKit X users. Simply boot your AmiKit and the integrated Live Update will take care of the rest.

We deliver the latest program updates, such as MUI 5, NetSurf, WHDLoad and many others, as well as some bugfixes. A new game called MiniSlug is included too!

Oh, and we released AmiKit X for Linux too! :afro: For details please visit www.amikit.amiga.sk



What is AmiKit X?[/u]

It's the 10th long-awaited version of a well-known emulation package of more than 380 Classic AmigaOS3.x programs. We've done all the hard work for you. Everything is pre-installed, well configured and designed.

AmiKit X, now available for Windows, Mac and Linux users, was originally developed as the main operating system for A.L.I.C.E. (A Laptop Incorporating Classic Experience by A-Eon Technology Ltd, read more in their press release).

With tons of improvements and all the included programs, AmiKit X represents the most complete and up-to-date classic 68k Amiga world in a modern suit!





AmiKit X REVIEWS


Amiga User magazine (online/printed, English/Polish) - "This is just beautiful!"

Moj Mac Magazyn (online, Polish) - "5 out of 5 points!"

Epsilon's Amiga Blog (online, English) - "In summary, AmiKit X offers a hell of a lot of features and inclusions, and the pre-built environment is wonderful and saves us all a huge amount of time. To build the very basic AmigaOS 3.1 or 3.9 environment into something even remotely close to what has been achieved here would likely take weeks of effort. Time most of us don't have anymore! For that significant work alone, AmiKit X is worth the outlay!"

Amiga Future 127 (printed, English/German) - "Those who have already played classic Turrican will know this feeling: as a man made of flesh and blood is thrust into a state-of-the-art combat suit that makes you stronger, faster and invincible, say super human. The chrome gleams on the breast shield and on the phaser cannons, you can jump higher, faster and further and don't need to hide from anything or anyone. If you don't have Turrican at hand you can also get this feeling with AmiKit X"

BlitterWolf Amiga magazine (online, English) or Amiga Future 127 (printed, English/German) contain interesting interviews with Jan Zahurancik, the founder & designer of AmiKit.





What do you need to run AmiKit?

- First of all, you need Windows, Mac or Linux system (other platforms like Raspberry Pi or Vampire will be supported in future)
- AmiKit already includes 380 Amiga programs, but it does NOT include the Amiga Operating System required to run them. Therefore, for AmiKit to work, you still need AmigaOS & ROM files (located in Amiga Forever or AmigaOS4.1 CD, for instance)
